  2. Deleting Windows 10 user account/profile

    Hello,

    For us to better assist you, we'd like to know the following:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    • Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    • Click OK.
    • Are you login to an Administrator account?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you disable the said user account via Command Prompt. Refer to the steps below:

    1. Right-click on Start button, select
    Command Prompt (Admin).

    2. On the Command Prompt window, type in net user and press
    Enter.

    3. A list of user profiles on your computer will appear, if you see the user account you wish to disable then you can type:

    net user ExampleUserName /active:no (note the space between the end of the user name and the /) and press
    Enter.

    Note: Make sure that you have other accounts available to your computer with Administrator rights before performing this method.

    We look forward to your response.

    Regards.

  3. The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded.

    Hello,

    When attempting to login to my computer, I get the following message:

    "The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in.

    User profile cannot be loaded."

    I referred to this Help article,You receive a "The User Profile Service failed the logon” error
    message,


    but the only difference is I only have one user profile on this computer. So, I can't login with another user to go through the steps listed in this post.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
